V-Rooms™, the virtual data room experts, announced on Tuesday the pre-launch of Global Deal Market™, a rated deal marketplace exclusively for Family Office direct investments in private US based mature companies, typically with annual up to $100 million. With this pre-launch, Global Deal Market (GDM) is actively reviewing M&A deals for presentation to our Charter Member Investors. With the public launch in January, GDM will present a wide assortment of deals to over 300 Family Offices.
Global Deal Market will be the premiere deal rating and matching service for partnered Family Office Investors and Ultra High-Net-Worth Individuals who are interested in owning private US based mature companies. Typically, the owners of these mature companies are approaching retirement age and are seeking exit strategies, preferably selling to Family Offices who have long-term holding strategies.
“We are excited to be able to provide a marketplace for this large “Silver Tsunami” group, a popular reference to the generation of baby boomer business owners, who are selling their companies,” said Dan Bradbary, Chairman of Global Deal Market, LLC. “Within the next 10 years, millions of these companies will be sold.”
The Global Deal Market platform utilizes the award winning V-Rooms™ Virtual Data Room solution which over the past eight years has facilitated the due diligence process for thousands of M&A transactions. Listed M&A deals on the GDM platform will be assigned a Deal Readiness Rating™, indicating the depth of due diligence information immediately available to interested buyers and investors, once non-disclosure agreements are signed.
After the recent financial crisis, Family Offices have expressed an increased interest in direct investment in private companies, as compared to funds. The current view is that funds are expensive and the individual investors lose a measure of control to the fund operators. As a result, many Family Offices are now hiring experienced staff to actively search for individual transactions for investment. The Global Deal Market platform will provide an ideal marketplace for these private company sellers and buyers.
V-Rooms™ provides a cloud-based, customizable virtual data room (VDR) solution that is designed to streamline document management, collaboration, exchange and archiving for financial, legal and corporate professionals. The V-Rooms™ Sofware-As-A-Service (SAAS) secure document portal facilitates the secure exchange of sensitive information providing compliant and auditable transactions. V-Rooms™ enables the acceleration of complex, information-intensive processes while reducing the time and expenses associated with data distribution, courier, printing and travel.
